So Blessed Being A Mom

All I ever remembering wanting to be since I was a little girl, was a wife and a mother, I am so blessed because I have been blessed to be both!  God is so good to me-today was a wonderful day-my friend Donna who lives in Baird, about 30 minutes from me, asked me to sing at their church for their Mother's Day Service.  We decided it would be fun to kind of have a pot luck lunch and have a bunch of us bring food to eat after the church service.  I love church pot luck dinners-not only is there soooo much food, but everybody brings their favorite dishes so it is yummy food too!   I made King Ranch Chicken Casserole and Peanut Butter Pie.
This was a new recipe but I thought it turned out really well and I didn't have any to bring home so I think it went over well.   It was great to sing too.  I love singing and they are always so sweet to ask me to sing at their church.
I have had such a blessed day-I thought I would share with you some pictures of my blessings! :)  So thankful and even more blessed for these sweet kids-I don't deserve them but I am so glad that God chose me to be their mom.  I love you Alyssa, Derek, Brandon, and Analeigh.  You make my life as a mommy full of blessings,  thank you for being my sweet kids.   I love you to the moon and back.
Love you
Mom

What a great day...your pictures always take me back down memory lane with my first four.

No one took pictures on Mother's Day this year...oh well, we will survive, I have them in my heart. We went to my son and daughter-in-law's place for dinner.

I would love to hear you sing one day and so glad you got to sing on Mother's Day.

I am open if you come anywhere near me...I will meet you and we can just enjoy life!
